University of Toledo Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (9)
I'd rate UT very poorly. The school tends to act as if commuters don't exist, despite being a majority. Next to no career advising, courses taught by TAs, very low ROI. No name recognition, facilities falling apart (I know a leaking roof since 2000).
I loved my school. It was a great atmosphere and quality education. There was always something to do on campus: sporting events, sponsored activities, etc. The tuition is affordable in comparison to other schools of the same caliber. The one thing I didn't like about the school was the parking, or lack there of. If you plan on commuting, arrive 20-30 minutes early because it may take that long to find a spot.
The College of Education was a very well rounded program. I attended a variety of classes for elementary education: reading, math, social studies, science, music, art, PE, just to name a few. I have drawn on the knowledge gained over 16 years ago.
There is ZERO job placement at the University of Toledo. They just want your tuition. I now have over 70,000 in school loans and it took me 4 years to find a job in an unrelated field where I can afford my loan payments. If there is anything I would do different I would learn a trade. COLLEGE IS FOR SUCKERS!
As far as education, it really depends on the program. UT has a renowned nursing and pharmacy program while maintaining. Nice business school too.
University of Toledo has an amazing Liberal Arts program with fantastic professors. The core requirements are tedious and expensive, though I assume on par with other like schools.
The University of Toledo is a hidden gem among the bigger schools. It is more affordable and has a huge selection of programs, most of which are nationally ranked and accredited. The campus is beautiful and the culture is contagious. We have die hard fans and great alumni support.
I would not recommend this college to anyone not wiling to really suffer in order to attain your desired degree. The administrative staff frequently appears totally incompetent and the financial aid staffing could pass for the performers in a three ring circus based on their actual knowledge of how to help students.
At the time in my life it was a good fit. I had a full scholarship and a lot of one on one time with the faculty members although my program was not on of the best out there.
No. I would do something that either made more money (education doesn't pay the bills without a second job) or I would do something with more adventure, travel, outdoor education something along those lines.
Give your self as many options as you possibly can and take advantage of everything college has to offer you will never be in a position that offers as many chances or try thing out like you have when your in college.
